I had a great experience with Write for life, David T. I would work with him again on other projects in the near future. As a beginner writer, he listened to my voice, and develop the style to a professional level. Thank you.Dec 4, 2014Verified
When I first started writing my memoir, I didn't know where to begin. How do you take all the pieces of your life, and make sense of them in a significant way to interest readers? When I began work with David, he sort of acted like a therapist, listening to me, and helping me make sense of things. He didn't act as writer, but more encourager which gave me the confidence to start writing. He just told me to write, and once I was off, I could start to feel a direction for the book. He came up with chapter names, egged me on, asked questions. We met regularly on a weekly basis for a while,and for a while, I had a hard time making myself sit down and write, but after a time, he began giving me homework assignments which held me accountable, and made me write. David was aware that I wanted to do the writing myself, so he never got in my way, and just helped with editing in the beginning stages when I didn't have an agent or publisher. My book has been out for over a year now, published by Seven Stories Press, and I am grateful to David for believing in the project, and for seeing it come to fruition.Feb 23, 2014Write for Life's reply
Thanks so much, Laurie. You're a force, so open and smart and loving. My honor to support you and your book. Now if only you'll give me 5 stars instead of 1, as it's clear you misunderstood the ranking order. Best, David

David was excellent and amazing to work with. He was prepared and had really valuable suggestion with my book.Jul 6, 2017Verified
David Tabatsky is a pro in every sense of the word. He made me see things in my historical novel I would never have noticed. Obviously, working for a celebrity like Marlo Thomas, co-authoring with her, shows how good he is.Jul 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It depends on length, present condition and deadlines requested. Each project is different, depending on many factors.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Always brushing up on new trends in publishing and reading anecdotal pieces from writers and editors. We can all inspire each other.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I've been telling stories all my life, first as an actor, then as a clown and solo variety artist, writing over dozen of my own one-man shows, which have toured throughout the world. Writing and editing books has been a natural evolution for me.
